Try a little shot of WD-40 on 1 at a time. Protect your eyes if engine running. If screeching stops, yup, you found the one, but do yourself a favor, if both haven't been done in a while, do it now & save yourself more aggravation later.

I have a 1999 mercury mystique it was ideling and made screaching sound the smoke under hood now serpentine belt wont turn

Sounds like a pulley locked up on this point, if you're going to do it yourself, take a pic of belt or draw a diagram showing the belt routing....remove belt and see what pulley is guess is gonna be the alternator. .

The whining sreaching sounds under the hood starts when you 1st started then after that somtimes gets louder while you driving only

Could be a pulley, belt or bearings of sort. Take it to a well referenced repair shop for proper diagnostics.

It struggles to start sometimes, other times it doesnt. yesyerday i heard a screaching noise while driving, later that night it wouldnt start. the car lights were diming then nithing

Check your belts, the screaching noise was probably coming from the belt slipping. Make sure the alternator and all the pulleys are turning freely.

When im driving in the rain and water gets up under my car, the battery light comes on, the car tries to die and my belt screaches. Do I need a new serpentine belt??

it sounds like the water is causing the belt to slip i would try replacing the belt but I would also check all the pulleys and make sure they are all still good.

Car is running hot and I can smell gas fumes. Has no power going up a hill. I also hear a screaching sound. Checked the main belt but don;t see any problems. Could the idler pulley have something to do...

Remove belt and and check to see if water pump turns freely.It sounds like the water pump is not wanting to turn and that is causing the overheating and screaching sound.That could also cause loss of power.

2004 alero making loud screaching noise by tire brakes are fine

It's the belts. Quick fix is spray some kind of silicone lubricant on them, like tire shine. You should really replace the belt or belts that are making noise, also check the belts tension. Too loose and they'll make noise
